I work with soft-tissues issues that can cause chronic pain; with my specialized education and understanding of anatomy, I will help you to understand many of the reasons behind your pain and discomfort. Therefore, my sessions include approximately 15+ minutes of consultation/evaluation, health education, medically-oriented session notes, over and above the hands-on time. My assessment skills, education, and the specificity of my work is what sets me apart from most other massage practitioners.

Usually colds are not a problem for me. Given the current "COVID climate", any and all symptoms (new to you) are suspect and cause for N95 masking and/or rescheduling. I have breathable and comfortable N95s on hand. If you choose to reschedule, please text or call me as soon as possible to reschedule to avoid the cancellation fee. I am still preferring to be extra cautious because 1) over 40% of my regular clients have underlying conditions, and 2) if I catch it I still have to cancel 5 days of work. No thanks.
Bottom line is if the St. Paul Public Schools are closed due to inclement weather, so am I. If the weatherman reports that "driving or temperatures could be dangerous", stay home and avoid being in an accident/outside. Just call L'Amour and/or text me as soon as you think you can't make it.
